Our Bike Tours and COVID-19/Ukraine.

France Covid-19 situation & Ukraine: booking your bike tour with confidence.

Covid-19: As with many countries, the number of Omicron cases and hospitalisation rates, in France, is low. And life is back to normal now, with no health pass or masks required to enter a public building or transport, with the exception of « medical » buildings (hospital, doctors, pharmacies...).

International borders are opened to vaccinated visitors or people with a negative test. No reason for travelling or a sworn undertaking statement are required to enter to France. It is essential, however, to check the conditions with your own local national bodies regarding travel to and from France. Below we have listed links to several official Foreign national bodies regarding their own travel requirements to France.
USA: https://fr.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/
Canada: https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/health-safety/travel-health-notices/221
UK: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france/entry-requirements
EU + Schengen area: https://reopen.europa.eu/en/

We understand though that even if you are fully vaccinated, some guests may still have some reluctance to organise overseas travel, for fear of the Covid situation deteriorating and due to the tragic situation in Ukraine. So, in order to give you peace of mind when booking your future tour with us, we have put in place our 3-point Covid/Ukraine Guarantee policy.

  1. Full Credits – Should your local Gov’t not let you travel to France, or the French Gov’t not let you enter France (within 21 days of your tour start dates), then we will provide you with a Full Credit for any payments made.

  2. Full Flexibility – Any credits made by us, will be on an open-ended basis, allowing you to use them for any future tour date of your choosing and convenience. There is no short “use by date”.

  3. Full Transferability – If you want to pass your full credit onto a friend or family member, that would be fine, and there is no admin fee either.

We hope you find the above conditions reasonable; it must be said not many other tours are offering such good terms!

Our 2022 tours restarted in May, with great joy from our guests being able to cycle again in Provence and the Luberon! Please note though that with the back log of people wanting to travel, availabilities for 2023 are moving very fast…
